Are you talking about 2950 and 2900 switches? Those have been end of life for a while, so I'm struggling to find any documentation.
Are these CatOS or IOS devices? If IOS, can you do a sho run | inc logging and paste it here?
The directions you refer to, you mean these for Cisco, right? http://knowledgebase.solarwinds.com/kb/questions/2866/Configuring+Cisco+IOS+Routers+and+Switches+to+Syslog+to+Your+LEM+Appliance
I'm not familiar with the ROS, but based on this document:
It shouldn't be too difficult to set the LEM as a remote syslog server. The LEM will want syslog on port 514 (the default) as seen here:
At which point you'll have to make sure you have a connector built on the LEM (Manage --> Appliances, click the gear next to the LEM and select Connectors) for Rugged Switches, pointed at the local facility you configured on the switch.
Honestly, I just let it be over the weekend. When I came back this afternoon, the CPU was idling between 0 and 5 percent and my Cisco switch was in my list. I then shut it off, increased its CPU cores from 2 (or 4? Don't remember) to 8, and turned it back on. I was able to add a dozen more Cisco switches and the searching for nodes never spiked the CPU, although it was idling at 40% for the next 20 minutes before I went home. Not sure what it's doing now.
I guess it just takes a while.
I still don't have any RuggedCom switches listed as nodes, though. I'll check your links in the morning to address that.
Thanks for your help on this.
EDIT: And yes, some of these were 2900-series, although specifically I think they were 2960's. The rest were 3750G, 3750X, and 3550 switches.
